Vanderbilt Catholic student organization readies for unofficial status

As the fight over Vanderbilt University's nondiscrimination policy continues to make national news, members of Vanderbilt Catholic are hoping their "15 minutes of fame" are almost over.

For most of the school year, Vanderbilt Catholic and other on-campus Christian organizations have been at odds with the school's newly enforced nondiscrimination policy, which requires leadership positions in all registered student organizations to be open to everyone, regardless of their beliefs.
